I regard this role as a privilege and am looking forward to committing myself to carrying out the responsibilities of the Supporters Director”.

Supporters Trust Chairman Alan Russell welcomed the news. He said “David has been a Supporters Trust member since we first started and it is good for the Trust and the whole football club that we have someone both with his experience and who passionately believes in fans having a greater say in how the club is run”. He also paid tribute to David’s predecessor Tom Phillips. “Tom has put in an incredible effort the last two years. The role of Supporters Director isn’t an easy one but he has done a fantastic job”.
